MK8 is the latest (MK8 is just a small patched update from MK6) which replaced the botched MJ9 slight_smile

Yes you will as long as you stick to official Samsung ROM's.

Your phone is unlocked isn't it ?

By the way this is the reason I am asking, read this on Sammobile

"My advice is to leave the firmware as it is if you have the working language you need, and the phone works Ok.


Reason?
To change firmware is comparatively easy, but this will stop Kies updating your phone.

To get Kies to update, you then have to change the phone Product Code, and for this you have to root your phone.

After all this, you have a phone with older firmware than when you started. "
